With current refinements of radiologic technique that use digital computer processing of radiologic data to produce images of the major cervical and intracranial arteries, the vessels can be visualized with relatively small amounts of dye that are introduced through smaller catheters than those used previously. CHAPTER 2 SPECIAL TECHNIQUES FOR NEUROLOGIC DIAGNOSIS Magnetic Resonance and Computed Tomographic (Spiral, Helical) Angiography These are noninvasive techniques for visualizing the main intracranial arteries that can reliably detect intracranial vascular lesions and extracranial carotid artery stenosis.

Delta (1- to 3-Hz) activity is not present in the normal waking adult. During stroboscopic stimulation, an occipital response to each flash of light may normally be seen (photic or occipital driving). The visual response arrives in the calcarine cortex 20 to 30 ms after the flash of light. The presence of such a response indicates that the patient can at least perceive light, and if there is a claim to the contrary, the patient is either hysterical or malingering. The evoked visual responses (see further on) are an even more sensitive means of detecting hysterical blindness than occipital driving, since the latter may be absent in normal persons.
